France | 1977 | col | dir. Claude Goretta, with Isabelle Huppert, Yves Beneyton, Florence Giorgetti

Pomme, a discreet and young hairdresser, meets François, a cultivated and shy student. Inexperience, naivety and shyness bring the two together. But their closeness contains the embryo of future disputes: Pomme has much more to give than François can possibly take… Claude Goretta’s film won Isabelle Huppert a BAFTA award for Outstanding debut in 1978.
